Most people spend more time in their bedrooms than they do any other room in their home. Therefore, you should make sure that your bedroom is aesthetically pleasing. The great news is that you do not have to spend a fortune to upgrade the look of your bedroom.
Move the Bed
If you have enough room that you do not have to cram your bed up against the wall, then move it. If your bedroom is square, then consider placing it at the center axis, which gives you room to create different zones that will help you relax.
Arrange Your Artwork
Consider creating an art gallery in your bedroom by putting all your favorite artwork in the same type of frame. You can even save money by getting matching frames at the dollar store. Alternatively, hanging tapestries helps to cover large walls at a minimal expense.
Remove all the clutter out of your bedroom, including pieces of furniture that you do not use. Clutter causes stress in your life that you do not need. When choosing bedroom furniture, opt for pieces that are multifunctional, such as a bed with pull-out drawers underneath. While you are decluttering, make sure to give everything a good dusting. Pack away your off-season wardrobe. Get rid of clothes that no longer fit, or you wonder why you ever brought it in the first place.
Pick Blackout Curtains
Picking blackout curtains allow you to choose the amount of light in your bedroom. When picking new curtains, select ones that are longer than you need as they will make your bedroom seem bigger than it is in reality.
Add Colorful Accents
Surprise people looking at your bedroom with colorful accents. You can do this by hanging wallpaper on the side of your dresser or your bedroom door. Another inexpensive option is creating patterns with Washi tape.
Style Your Bed
The foundation of your bed should be a stylish and functional mattress. This will help anchor the room and help you get a great night’s sleep. Then decorate the accents. An easy way to style your bed is to arrange your pillows. Start with four standard-size pillows. The bottom two should have regular pillowcases on them while the top two have pillow shams on them that color coordinate with your bedding.
Then, layer a pair of decorative pillows in front of the four stacked pillows. Complete the look by placing a larger decorative pillow precisely in the middle of the two decorative pillows that you have laid out.
Opt for the Right Lighting
Bedside lamps are old fashion, and they take up a lot of tablespace. Instead, choose a hanging statement lamp to hang from your bedroom ceiling. Then, create some mood lighting by attaching sconces or another lighting to your walls. Finish by adding one task light in a reading corner that you create in your bedroom.
Adding plants is a great finishing touch that you will love in your bedroom. Get creative with their placement. Some plants that do well in low-light situations include ivies, snake plants, and Zz plants. Plants take in carbon dioxide that you breathe out, and they can help keep your room from feeling stuffy.
